    Superb 1891 Fifty Dollar Red Seal Silver Certificate

    Fr. 334 $50 1891 Silver Certificate Superb Gem New. A beautifully margined, well embossed, strictly original Fifty Dollar Silver. We've handled two sheet mates of this lovely note, the "A"-position note, serial number 166201, in January of 1999, when it realized $19,800. Prior to that, we also sold the "D"-position note, serial-number 166204, which was re-sold by Lyn in December of 2000 for $26,400. This note, the "B"-position, is the perfect complement to both of those pieces, and while we doubt it will fly quite as high as its sheet mates that sold on the somewhat stronger market, we would be surprised if it did not come quite close.
